about the fbi's prior look at the older brother who was killed, tamerlan tsarnaev? and is the fbi facing criticism is now? >> reporter: oh, yes. absolutely i think you're going to see an intense focus from capitol hill on this. and a lot of questions for the fbi. what we learned yesterday is that the fbi did have prior information about the older brother, tamerlan, that the russian intelligence service had had asked the fbi to investigate him in 2011 saying he was a follower of radical islam. the fbi says they interviewed tamerlan. they questioned members of his family, looked into public databases, and concluded they had no evidence of -- no hard evidence of islamic activity. now what's interesting -- radical islamic activity or anything cripple nal. now what's interesting in january of 2012 he gets a visa, flies to russia for six months, stays there. then he comes back to the united states and within a month he opens up this youtube account that's filled with islamic jihadi postings and radical prophecies that clearly would indicate sympathies for the jihad cause. did the fbi even noti

.s. as children. seeking refugee status. they thrived attending top boston schools. older brother, tamerlan, 26, star athlete, golden glove boxer, pianist. younger brother dzhokhar, 19, had just become a u.s. citizen, ironically, on september 11th of last year. once a lifeguard, he was an all-state wrestler and college student. >> i certainly can't put it together that he was a person firing a weapon and potentially killing people. >> reporter: last night the fbi acknowledged it interviewed tamerlan in 2011 based on a tip from the russians. the russians said he was a radical islamist, preparing to leave the u.s., possibly for a trip to the caucuses. after looking into tamerlan's phone records, websites he visited and associates, the fbi found no ties to terrorists. by law, fbi officials said, monitoring had to stop, barring new negative information. >> too many people in this country, just like him, that are touching extremist websites, that are espousing things that aren't particularly kind to americans, but that's not against the law here. >> reporter: tamerlan's father said his sons couldn't
tsarnaev. an exclusive against tamerlan. a source in russia tells nbc news russian intelligence reached out to the fbi last november about the 26-year-old. and crime scene units are back at the bomb site in boston right now. they're placing debris into garbage trucks. crews were seen sifting last night throughout that debris. let's go to pete williams. with a good afternoon to you, pete, let's talk first about the status of the charges in this case and what the likely charges will be. >> yes, i think the odds are pretty good that we'll see these charges in the next couple of hours. they're putting the final touches on them now. and we expect to learn a little more about what the fbi has assembled based on its investigation of the bombing. so perhaps there will be some new details that we'll get. in terms of the charges, i would think at the very least they'll charge him with the bombing, with a terrorism offense for that. and interestingly enough, under the federal statutes, which apply here, use of a weapon of mass destruction, which is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death r
and tamerlan, the older brother, stood up and argued. then in january there was a praise for martin luther king jr. and he got up and called someone a hypocrite. he had to leave. >>gretchen: ostensibly this younger guy didn't know anything about the bombing until a week before. if that is true, that lends to what we were discussing this morning that he was just an underling. it brings out the story that the parents were absent. the parents had gone back to russia and this 19-year-old kid was able to be swayed by the older brother. it appears he was the one that radicalized himself. i'm not saying he's not to blame at all. >>brian: there's no way you should believe -- everyone's apparently running with this story. you've got to be kidding me. you question him for 90 seconds as he's come out of a harrowing situation like this. he's in self-preservation mode. this guy needs to be questioned for a couple of weeks, needs to see if his story line is up. then you've got to drill down on it with professional interrogators. he does not need to see his miranda rights read to him in bed. laughable. >>stev
muslims more than it does. that's going to take it up discussion. we learned today tamerlan was kicked off a mosque because being too radical. what peter king will do with that information, based on experience, say that's proof we need to more closely monitor people in this country. i'm not sure you need to go that far. this is somebody who was in a citizenship cue and had that process delayed because of going back and forth to russia. it might have been a specific case we missed and not something to look at as it expands ever more the investigation of muslims in general. something the system should have captured but we will discuss broad solutions, broad ideas not just republicans but national security hawks wanted whatever the situation is. >> we'll leave it there. go ahead, lynn. jump in. >> a quick point. this comes as the immigration bill is being kbeebt edebated i senate. >> we'll talk about that later in the broadcast. thanks to you all. appreciate your time. >>> the fbi again, interviews, in e did not find any terrorist links to him. how did that happen? i'll ask a senior member of
that ended with a surprisingly subdued ending on friday night. 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was pronounced dead after a dramatic shootout with law enforcement early friday morning. his 19-year-old dzhokhar escaped on foot precipitating a shelter in place order for the entire boston area. but the much sought after armed and dangerous teen was found wounded and incoherent in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban watertown home. discovered not by the hundreds of armed officers who had been searching for him for hours but by the home's owner, reportedly out for a smoke. with one assailant dead and the other in police custody, the people of watertown and the entire boston area expressed their enormous gratitude and sense of relief with spontaneous cheers and applause on friday night. the crisis is over. now the politics begin and this is where our responsibility in the media shifts. in the heat of the crisis, media take on the job of informational clearinghouse, keeping the public up to date, sharing critical information and get the information out right and fast. granted, those are goals
